Indigenous Cinema Series- Falls Around Her
The Roxy Theater in partnership with Indigenous Film Festival and Missoula Urban Indian Heath Center and sponsored by Humanities Montana, is proud to present the Indigenous Cinema Series, a weekly series in November intended to highlight indigenous stories in honor of National Native American Heritage Month. The objective of the Indigenous Cinema Series is to acknowledge and honor the presence of our American Indian community within Missoula and Indigenous peoples across the world and to be witness to their resilience as a people as displayed through a contemporary medium of storytelling.
The second film of this series will be Falls Around Her.
The film follows Mary Birchbark (Tantoo Cardinal), a legendary singer who returns to the vast wilderness of her reserve to reconnect with the land and her community. Mary begins to sense that someone might be watching her. Unsure of what is real and what is imagined, Mary embraces isolation as she explores the psychological impact of her past and present.
1-2 short films will shown prior to each feature film, and a panel discussion will follow all screenings.
Throughout the month they will be hosting a program of short films from Art House Convergence and Sundance Institute’s Indigenous Program alongside the feature film.
